    One thought on “Olga the Brolga”

    1. This is a newer Australian picture book, written and illustrated by Clement whose day-job is cartoonist for one of the big national newspapers. His illustration style is what really caught me eye, I'm really drawn to this style of artwork in picture books. It has a high level of fine detail, rich colours, is very vibrant and visually captivating, and the scenes are original - they're not obvious, or flat, angles or perspectives.The story is told in a slight sing-song rhyme, nothing too formal an [...]

    2. Author/Illustrator: Rod ClementFirst Published: 2002Bright Australian colours with a sweet narrative which appeals to the child as well as the mother in me - if you just stop nagging, everyone will be more receptive!Not a lot to say - it's colourful, straightforward, humorous, and happy. A lovely portrayal of Australian fauna with simple rhyme, highlighting the legendary dancer.AgeRead aloud: 4+Read yourself: 8+(ISBN 9780207197581)

    3. The illustrations are so rich and beautiful, and the story of the young olga who is whinny and rude finally getting what she wants when she finally acts in a non whinny way is a story that resonates well in our family.

    4. This book has fantastic illustrations and the text is also very good. I thought that it was pretty arrogant of the author to include a full page biography and photo before the title page
